Cameron is an illustrator hailing from Ohio. When she’s not drawing, she’s probably very, very quietly having loud thoughts about: queer things, her eventual shop, what to watch next on Netflix, food, names for her future pets, and tumblr.

Cameron has written 76 articles for us.


  1. This is gorgeous. I love your style and the best thing is the familiar little neck-less person at the end thinking “Are you flirting? Is this weird flirting?”

    Everything is great but especially the little neck-less person. This put a smile on my face :-)

  2. Every time this happens, I ask myself if marriage vows/contracts have an appearance clause that’s just kind of been subsumed into the rest of the words.

    “To have and to hold in sickness and in health until death do us part [or your aesthetic changes in a way that makes me feel a weird sense of entitlement over your decision to make this change because god you’re like totally different now and not still the person I married]”

  3. it’s nice when it works out in the positive though. I had a teacher compliment me back when I chopped all my hair off and comment that she’d always been too scared to do the same. I pep-talked her and told her she should just go for it, and a couple weeks later she came into class with a cute short bob. it felt like a win.


    I also work as server and every time I shave my undercut the chef at my restaurant asks me if I got into a fight with my barber. It was funny the first time, but 8 months later it makes me want to shave my head just to spite him. Which is silly.
    But YES work, hair, fucking patriarchy

  5. I love this, but who is the one with the husband? Ms Short Hair or Ms Long Hair? ( I can’t tell because I thought the one saying “Oh no I couldn’t, my husband would have a stroke” was Ms Shorthair?????) and then, which one is thinking the thoughts in the last cartoon panel?????

    Sorry Cameron, I love it, but I just got conflicting messages as to who was saying what. Sorry, I am making this cartoons for dummies but Please explain :):)
